Stock Club was created during a global pandemic by a group of high school students looking to educate others on the power of investing. Click the button to learn more about their story and what they're trying to achieve.
Sophia Bertoldo - Senior
“Hi, I’m Sophia. What I enjoy the most about the stock club is that I get to practice investing money that is not real. I learn best through practice and examples and trying it out and so having a simulation is probably the coolest part about the club. And, I get to be competitive with my peers which I think is important. What I have learned? I have learned everything about the stock market from the stocks club because I knew absolutely nothing going into it. That means definitions of terms, companies, techniques, how to even understand a graph, understand why I would invest in a company and literally everything about it I have learned from the stocks club. And I think how it could be improved is I think if the officers were a little harsher to us on what we were doing right or wrong because it would be nice to know why I am in 18th place in the simulation. I can’t really tell what I am doing wrong.”

“My name is Armando Medrano. Something I’ve enjoyed about Stock Club so far is having people around me that are as interested in [stocks] as I am, and just being around people like that during the class and getting to see everyone’s different input on the subject. I don’t think I knew anything about stocks when I first joined. I knew that you could make money from it but now I know that nothing is guaranteed and it’s more complicated and detailed than what you think. Something I feel that can be improved is the amount of days that we go. We only go Tuesdays… but another day would be cool because you have to wait a whole week for the next class and its kind of frustrating sometimes. It’s a cool class and it’s fun getting to see a lot of new faces. Thank you, guys! ”

I’m Moussa. Something I’ve enjoyed about the Stock Club are the games we play to practice the things we learned. I’ve learned a lot about the stock market and something that I can improve on is my actual skills trading stocks.
